Article written by Pastor David Ibiyeomie, founder and senior pastor of Salvation Ministries titled Result “Oriented Prayer”.
Not every prayer produces result; many people pray but few obtain answers. There are factors that can help you to pray in a way that it can produce the intended result. When you pray, you are giving earthly approval for heavenly involvement.
Matt.18:18 -Verily I say unto you, whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
Prayer is communicating with God on the basis of His word and our relationship with Him. There are certain ingredients that can produce result when applied during prayer. Effectiveness in prayer is not measured by your acrobatic display or by the extent of noise you make while praying. Effective prayer is not measured by the volume of tears you shed; it is not also measured by your complaints.
Dan.11:32b – … but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
God’s word reveals His person, His abilities and capabilities; thus, if you know God, it then means that you know God. You cannot do exploit without the knowledge of God’s word.
James 4:3 – Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
Knowledge of God’s word will also enable you not to ask amiss. It is not every request made in prayer is granted because some people ask amiss in prayer. When you know God’s word, you will ask in line with His word and not deviate.
To win a case in court, a lawyer must cite relevant laws and references applicable to that situation. With that, the judgement will be delivered on his behalf. So also, when you appear before the supreme court of the entire universe, you ought to refer to the constitution which is the word of God and cite scriptures relevant to your request. God is always looking for opportunities to honour His word.
Have faith that your prayer is answered and continuously thank God for the answered prayer and the answers will manifest speedily in the name of Jesus! Your desires will surely be granted and victory will be guaranteed in the name of Jesus the Christ –Amen!!!
God bless you.
